1 To be eligible for an HSBC Premier home equity line of credit, you must be a Premier or Jade relationship customer with a U.S. Premier checking account. To learn more about the Premier or Jade relationship requirements contact an HSBC branch or call toll free at 866.801.6756.

3 Discounts and loan amount depend on specific program and may require certain Permier or Advance balances, reserves, equity and automatic payment from HSBC U.S. Premier or Advance checking Account. For home equity, the Premier and Advance APR includes an auto-pay discount of .50% and .25%, respectively.

4 The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for a Home Equity Line of ChoiceSM is variable and is based on the U.S. Prime Rate published each day in The Wall Street Journal (but not the Weekend Edition of The Wall Street Journal) (the "Index") plus a margin. If The Wall Street Journal publishes more than one U.S. Prime Rate for a day, the Index will be the average of those rates. The index as of the last change date of September 27, 2018 is 5.25%. The maximum APR is the greater of 15.9% or 5% above the initial APR. The APR will not increase or decrease by more than 4% in each year. Rates apply to lines secured by your primary residence (excluding co-ops and 3-4 family property) with a total loan-to-value ("TLTV") ratio of 80% or less. Higher rates may apply for different TLTV's, property and product types. Please contact us for current rates on lines with different terms. The APR does not include closing costs. For line amounts of $500,000 or less, HSBC will pay all closing costs. For line amounts greater than $500,000, you will be required to pay 50% of title insurance costs and any mortgage tax-like fees; however, HSBC will pay all other closing costs. Generally, closing costs are estimated to range from $270 to $19,900, but may be higher depending on the location of your home and the amount of your line of credit. If you terminate your account within the first three years, you will have to pay an early termination fee of $500 (or $750 for properties located in California and Virginia), plus any mortgage tax-like fees paid by HSBC at the time your account was established. No annual or application fees will be assessed. Your Home Equity account will be secured by a mortgage on your home. All persons on the deed must sign the mortgage. Property insurance is required and flood insurance may be required.

5 Consult your tax advisor for details on tax deductibility of interest paid on loans secured by your home.

6 The fixed rate loan option provides the ability to fix the interest rate on all or a portion of the outstanding balance during the draw period. Up to three balances can be fixed at one time. Additional conditions apply.
